Hello! My name is Alken Dervishi. I am a 3 years old boy and my birthday is on February 1st. I am in good health. I will start to attend the kindergarten on September and there I will meet with my friends. We enjoy learning new things from our kindergarten teacher as poems by heart or songs. She tells us beautiful stories and teaches us to love one another. I like to draw and my favorite color is green. At present the weather is nice and I like to get together with my friends and cousins to play outside. Our games are simple as hide and seek, running to catch one another, etc. I have a sister who is younger and I spend a while to play with her.
I frequent the programme of Katjel and enjoy the Bible lessons we take there from the teachers of the church. My grandmother takes me to the programme. Once every month, the Adopt a Child programme has delivered to me a food package containing groceries as sugar, rice, oil, etc. We are all as family blessed to receive these groceries from the program during this time of need caused by the pandemic lockdown.
My family and I live in Katjel. My father’s name is Gjergji and my mother’s name is Nexhmije. My grandmother lives in my family too. Our home is new and offers appropriated living conditions to us. My father is emigrating in Greece and there he works in agriculture for three months and he does construction for three other months. We have land in the village and my mother has planted a vegetable garden during spring. At present, we are collecting a few vegetables and have started to consume them. My mother provides beans, tomatoes, anions, peppers and other vegetables fresh from our garden. My grandmother and mother are recently collecting fruits from the trees we have around our land and garden. They compost these fruits and make composts of jam that we consume during the winter. Thank you for your care and support to me through the sponsorship Adopt a Child programme. God bless you!
